2 Peter 1:5-8
1:5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith excellence, to excellence, knowledge;
1:6 to knowledge, self-control; to self-control, perseverance; to perseverance, godliness;
1:7 to godliness, brotherly affection; to brotherly affection, unselfish love.
1:8 For if these things are really yours and are continually increasing, they will keep you from becoming ineffective and unproductive in your pursuit of knowing our Lord Jesus Christ more intimately.
